part of my encounter with bill o'reilly for jon stewart's autism benefit "night of too many stars." there was a lot where that came from. o'reilly and i had strict guidelines to stick to in our debate. take a look. >> you know the rules of the debate. neither participant shall be permitted to speak without first filling their lungs with helium. the participants may continue to speak only if the helium has kept up the pitch of their voice. >> we have to start now. why don't you ask a question. >> you inhale, they decide. >> that means like it or lump it. >> our annual deficits are now above -- you might want a little more of that-- $1 trillion a year. the president says it's time to raise taxes on the rich. governor romney says that would inhibit job creation. >> well, i don't agree with that. >> i say we have to go back to the clinton tax rates and get the hell out of afghanistan. >> you can catch the full production if you want to this sunday on comedy central at 8:00 p.m. eastern. that's "hardball" for now. coming up next, "your business" with j.j. ramberg. tried weight . but th

guest on the jon stewart show . he got away with a comment. we start the notable quotables with the president's response about sacrificing our values to insure national security. >>> there are trade offs. there are times when bad folks somewhere on the other side of the world and you have to make a call and it is not optimal. >>> that was the first time he used the term not optimal. >>> fast forward the discussion changes. it focuses the administration's response to the benghazi attacks. >>> i would say even you admit it was not the optimal reponce to the american people as far as us being on the same page. >>> this is what i will say. if four americans get killed it is not optimal and we will fix it >>> there were people who different appreciate the commepts. like pat smith. her son shawn was killed in the benghazi attacks and she said and how can you say someone being killed is not very optimal. it is insentencative to say my son is not very optimal. he's always very dead. i have not been optimal since he died and the past few weeks have been pure hell. i can't imagine what pat sm
